Cup Arcana

Inspired by overtly herbaceous, tropical Agricole Rhum cocktails, this Pacific Islander inspired cup uses Blanco tequila and Amaro Montenegro as its spirit base. Orgeat, a toasted almond syrup emblematic of many tiki drinks, is a major agent in marrying the two together. Add whiskey barrel bitters to the top of this citrus-bright drink for inky, added drama.

  • 2 oz Blanco Tequila
  • .75 oz Amaro Montenegro
  • 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice, pulp strained
  • 1 oz Orgeat
  • 2-3 Dashes Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel Bitters

Shake ingredients and strain over crushed ice in a tall Collins glass. Top with whiskey barrel bitters or fresh mint, a lime wheel and a paper umbrella if you’re a tiki purist.
